Baby Name Trends for 2015

Esmeralda, baby name

Esmeralda and Esme


Swoon-worthy couple Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling named their baby Esmeralda in September 2014. The name means "emerald" in Spanish, and is the name of Quasimodo's love interest of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Esmeralda isn't likely to become a top pick for baby girls, but it will probably get a small boost from the Gosling baby buzz. Esme — a charming nickname for Esmeralda — is more likely to gain broader appeal.
